Ready for the future - KWS Hybrid Rye meets todays and tomorrow´s requirements for a modern and high-yield crop

Hybrid Rye has the best attributes for sustainable and healthy nutrition for humans and animals - best reasons for from now on more Hybrid Rye on field. Let´s start the #RYEVOLUTION!

Ryevolution unites Rye, Evolution and Revolution. What do the words stand for?



Rye has excellent yield potential.



Rye shows high yield progress in hybrid breeding.



Rye is the best solution for current and future agricultural challenges.

#RYEVOLUTION Seed production


Beneficial for the immune system

New findings on the feed value make rye also interesting for pig feeding. Rye contains a lot of fiber and fructans, which are converted in the pig's colon into organic acids such as butyrate. These acids have a positive effect on intestinal health and intestinal flora. This is good for the immune system, because its function is determined by the microbial composition of the intestinal flora. Butyrate also contributes to salmonella reduction and lowers the boar taint caused by skatole. An extensive field trial confirmed these results.

Rye promotes animal welfare

Rye promotes animal welfare, because the high fiber content makes the pigs well-fed for a longer time. The blood sugar level remains stable, well-fed pigs are more satisfied and more relaxed – and that with consistently high performance. In addition, fiber is good for the gastric mucosa, they prevent stomach ulcers.

Not afraid of ergot

Farmers used to be afraid to use rye for feeding, because of ergot toxin. Therefore, rye was used only in small amounts. However, the latest breeds of KWS with the PollenPlus® breeding system are only slightly susceptible to ergot. They produce more pollen pollinating the stigma, therefore the risk of fungi settlement is reduced.
